HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Military police are standing guard outside a home on Morishige Lane at Aliamanu Military Reservation.Police sources say 36-year-old Michael Walker found his wife, 38-year-old Catherine Walker, dead inside their home at about 6:30 Saturday morning. Catherine had a knife wound to her neck.
Police sources say the soldier admitted to arguing with her the night before, but told U.S. Army investigators that he did not hurt her. Honolulu police K-9 units helped search the area but no arrests have been made.
Residents who live on the military property are worried because no one is in custody and because the gates are not manned constantly.
Friends, who were too distraught to talk on camera, called her "Cathy." They say she was soft spoken, extremely helpful and willing to do just about anything for anyone. They said she was a devout Mormon who attended Aliamanu Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints regularly with her husband. She had no children, but her friends say she treated the kids at her church like her own.
According to Michael's Facebook page, he is a medic in the Army.
Friends of Catherine say they want the killer to know a good woman died at their hands.
An autopsy conducted Tuesday showed Walker died from stab wounds to the torso and neck, the Medical Examiner's office has classified her death as a homicide.
